"Carmenere" from the company Ka'Del Bosco - the only wine in Italy, sold under the name "Carmenere". In Northern Italy Bordeaux variety Carmenere Cabernet Franc has long been considered, and only special investigations initiated Ca'Del Bosco in 1996, showed the opposite. This fact is reflected on the label - a wolf in sheep's clothing symbolizes the strong and free Carmenere, hiding under the guise of deceptive Cabernet Franc. Since the species is not typical of Lombardy, the wine is classified as a table (VdT).
Grapes for the "Carmenere" 2006 collected from two vineyards located in the commune of Passirano. Collection began on September 24. The average age of the vines is 21 years. Harvested by hand in small boxes, carefully sorted, destebliruetsya and press. Juice flows into fermentation tanks under the action of gravity.

For malolactic fermentation and aging the wine is transferred into small 3-year-old oak barrels, 65% - the new, for a period of about 17 months. After aging wine bottled with innovative system in the absence of oxygen and without agitation to maintain the integrity of the flavor and taste.
